Blue Horseshoe Stocks: PVTL Bottom Play & More

Pivotal Software Inc. PVTL

We’ve been quietly tracking this play for quite some time, and feel it’s just about ready to make a move. As you can see on the included chart, PVTL has sold off after recent earnings, and the stock has found support at a solid double-bottom in the $19-range.

You can also see that PVTL is approaching heavily oversold territory, and the MACD is converging sharply toward a bullish cross, not to mention a sizable gap to the upside. We’re going to want to have a range of options contracts on watch in the days and weeks ahead in the event that the rebound occurs which looks just about due at the present time.

Our targets will be the PVTL 10/19 $19-22 Calls.


Blackberry Ltd. BB

We also want to designate a pair of options contracts for the Blackberry chain this morning on the heels of the company’s Q2 profit beat.

We’ll be looking for a dip-and-rip scenario, which, if it occurs, should produce some significant gain opportunities in the BB Weekly $10 & $10.50 Calls.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks NKE Bear, KMX Bull & More

Earnings-Related Options Ideas

Our regular readers know that quick-strike options trading of plays that have just seen their quarterly earnings releases are among our favorite scenarios. The volatility afforded to us by these events is key to the type of opportunities we are commonly after.

This morning, we have NKE which has untraded-upon earnings reported in the post-market yesterday, and Carmax which dropped its report in the premarket today. We’ve got a set of bearish ideas for NKE and bullish ideas for KMX.

We’ll place the following targets on our watchlist today to monitor throughout the remainder of the week:

CarMax, Inc, KMX Weekly $77-79 Calls
Nike, Inc. NKE Weekly $83.50-81.50 Puts

_____

L.B. Foster Co. FSTR

We also have a longer term idea for the FSTR chain. As you can see on the chart snapshot we’ve included below, the stock is presently exhibiting a strong multiple-bottom.

We’re going to place the FSTR 10/19 $22.50 & $25 Calls on watch in the likely event that a recovery does occur.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: AMD Review & More

Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. AMD

Our first order of business today is going to be to take a look at the incredible year AMD has had. We’ve mentioned it quite a few times along the way, but if we track all the way back to April 26th, we see that we caught this stock at a low of 10.61.

AMD has been an absolute juggernaught all year, and this morning in the premarket trades are going off at 33.25. That’s 213% higher than our observed share price this spring, and AMD shows little sign of slowing its gradual ascent.

In terms of options ideas, we are going to put an observation tag on the AMD Weekly $32-33 Calls.


Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE

Yesterday morning for a fresh options idea,we stated that if we saw ADBE maintain support at or above 258.49, we were going to be very interested in the ADBE 10/26 $260-265 Calls.

The stock began to make the reversal we expected yesterday, and its activity fueled the first round of gains for our calls, which were as follows:

$260 Calls– Range: 8.05-10.50 – Max Gain: 30%
$262.50 Calls – Range: 7.25-8.50 – Max Gain: 17%
$265 Calls – Range: 4.85-7.85 – Max Gain: 62%

We would not be at all surprised to have to swing back around to report much larger gains down the road on these ideas, but yesterday’s activity was a solid start.

Blue Horseshoe Stocks: MU Recap & More

Micron Technology, Inc. MU

On Friday morning we spent most of our report updating readers on several great stock calls we’ve made in recent weeks, but we did include one fresh options trading idea, and we’re pleased to report that it was a resounding success, and a greta opportunity to daytraders to nail down some quick profits.

We targeted the MU Weekly $43-45 Calls and the whole range took off for the following impressive single-session gains:

$43 Calls – Range: .97-2.50 – Max Gain: 158%
$43.50 Calls – Range: .68-2.05 – Max Gain: 201%
$44 Calls – Range: .32-1.50 – Max Gain: 369%
$44.50 Calls – Range: .17-1.07 – Max Gain: 529%
$45 Calls – Range: .08-.68 – Max Gain: 750%

Our quick-strike options prowess has been second to none for quite some time now, and MU was another shining example of that! Big cheers to anyone who was able to take advantage.

Adobe Systems, Inc. ADBE – Fresh Options Idea

For a fresh idea, we’re going to signal a longer-term set of contracts in the ADBE chain. The stock has a fairly predictable trading pattern, and appears to be approaching an up-cycle in the days or weeks ahead.

If we can see ADBE maintain support at or above 258.49, we are going to be very interested in the ADBE 10/26 $260-265 Calls.



Cool Holdings. Inc. AWSM

 
Also in Friday morning’s report was a tag of AWSM. We had just noticed it’s big day in the prior session, and included it in our daily watchlist.

The stock made an absolutely monstrous single-session run for something trading in the $11-range, running from a low of 11.11 to a high of 22.61 for a 104% intraday move. It also closed more than 80% in the green on the day!
